Our client was riding a motorcycle in a rural road in W. Massachusetts when he was attacked by a large German Shepard dog. The attack caused the client to fall from his motorcycle and in so doing, his ankle and leg were broken. In addition the fall resulted in serious head trauma. A lawsuit was filed against the owner of the dog and the person with whom the owner left the animal unattended despite clear instructions to keep the dog in its designated enclosure or on a leash. After lengthy negotiations with the insurers for both the dog owner and dog caretaker, a six significant settlement ( in six figures) was reached on behalf of the client.
